I make large sculptural coil pots. My inspiration for this was seeing photos of Moira Young’s lovely pots in a book on ceramics not long after I started playing with clay. I enjoy the therapeutic process of coiling and the fact that using clay as a medium you can make a piece to any size and shape, the only limitation is working out how. I think the nice thing about 3D work as opposed to 2D is that as you move around a Sculpture and with the changing light, the appearance of the piece continually changes. It gives me a great deal of pleasure to see one of my sculptures go into someone’s home or garden and enhance the environment in which they live.
